Margaret Ussery Obituary
Margaret Ussery, 81, of Alamogordo, passed away Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, in her home.
She is survived by her sisters Georgann Fox, of Dallas, and Mary Miller, of Waco, Texas; daughter Jodie Ussery; son Dan (Priscilla) Ussery; grandsons William "Sonny" (Jeanne) Garney, Aaron (Shanna) Ussery and Neil (Bobi Jo) LaSalle; granddaughters Priscilla (John) Murray and Whitney (Brian) Campbell; and five great-grandchildren.
Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, Lewis K. Ussery, whom she married Sept. 7, 1947. She enjoyed raising her family in El Paso and worked as a receptionist at a local medical office. She and her husband later became interested in the sport of showing dogs and began a dog kennel business.
Prior to leaving El Paso, Margaret helped young adults in the court system find jobs to pay restitution. She and Lewis returned to her hometown of Cloudcroft, where they built a log home and became James Canyon Fire Department volunteers.
In 1992, they moved to Reno, Nev., to manage a large condominium complex. They returned to New Mexico 10 years later, living in Alamogordo until passing.
Family and friends admired Margaret's loving and giving nature and we especially appreciated her fantastic sense of humor. She will be missed by all.
The family would like to express their gratitude to Teresa Story and Alamogordo Hospice.
A gathering of family and friends will take place at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011, at Grace Baptist Church. The memorial service will be led by Pastor Joe Bryant.
